The Larger view

I'm not too sure if this could be counted as the "power" of three.:-)

Legislative Council Building, Central, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 1/58 second F/1.8 ISO 800 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

The intensity in the bodies' expressions is absolutely fantastic. You have played masterly with the composition and the light in a sublime way, Hugo. Congratulations for this most fine image.

Hi Hugo. I am a fan of the power of three as symbol of balance, and your image is a perfect demonstration of balance, and I should add, elegance too. Sorry for being out of touch for so long... Becky and I just returned from a three week road trip to parts of the western US. Hope you are doing well.

k@ from Paris, France

Like in an antic theatre, the actors are waiting in a Shakespearean attitude, a drama in on, with a fabulous lighting - you are a masterful director and i'd love to see this play. The Power of You, for sure.

@k@: Hope you'll enjoy the sequel!:-)

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Reminds me of marriage counseling . . and there's often three involved in that.

12 Jun 2012 6:39am

@Ronnie 2¢: Sadly the counseling didn't quite work out... stay tuned!

mo.langel from Courtelary, Switzerland

A very beautiful dramatic scene! I like the attitude of these three characters! Superb lighting and B/W! A good image for "the power of three"!

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Good title - remarkable how the three of them in such symmetry seem to be in their own space and lost in their own thoughts.

Symmetry is perfect, there is romance and and an air of observation, or meditation maybe...?
